The Big Crunch: Physicists Make Time End

Physicists Recreate 'End Of Time' in Lab

(The technical details) Hyperbolic metamaterial interfaces: Hawking radiation from Rindler horizons and the "end of time"

It should be noted that this is a simulation of one possible way our universe might evolve, one that current observations suggest is incorrect. However, it is a solution of Einstein's equations of General Relativity, and as such well worth studying.

When I was much younger something like this might have been called an "analog computer." I have not seen that term much lately.
